Lazio have reportedly signed free agent Louis Saha as a replacement for the injured Miroslav Klose.
The German international is set to be sidelined for two months and the Biancocelesti are concerned they lack cover.
Stories in Italy today are suggesting that the former French international, who terminated his Sunderland contract on January 31, will put pen to paper on a Lazio deal.
Saha will be handed a contract until June, with an option for the 2013-14 campaign.
The striker, now 34, has a past with Metz, Newcastle, Fulham, Manchester United, Everton and Tottenham.
